It’s not very often that a total solar eclipse crosses the country from coast to coast (the last time it happened was in 1918!). On August 21 this year, it’s happening again, and we are over the moon about it—no weird, inverse pun intended.

We’ve recorded a high-powered ballad about astrophysics, are giving away free eclipse-viewing gear at all of our stores starting August 1, and are flying one lucky eclipse observer and a friend out to celebrate with us in Nashville on the big day (official contest rules here).

Everything you need to know is on one big, eclipse-y page. Check it out >
